About Me

Wife, mother, artist. Lover of early morning walks, gardens, books, anything vintage.  Married to my college sweetheart, mother to two incredibly talented, smart, wonderful, almost-grown children.  We live in my childhood home, in beautiful Liberty Corner, NJ.  I believe we are all connected to one another through our common experiences of love and family.  I believe in the power of a moment, captured on film.  I believe in love.


From the moment I could hold a pencil in my hands, I have been an artist and storyteller.  I grew up drawing and painting the things I loved best -- flowers, birds, horses -- all the things I cherished in this country setting.  I even won a Courier News photo contest with a picture of my neighbor's barn, shrouded in fog.  But that was only a beginning.


From the moment I held our first child in my arms, I began my photographic journey.  And I soon came to realize that our ordinary lives are lived in moments of extraordinary beauty.  The soft, downy cheek of a baby at sleep, the joyous belly laugh of a toddler riding on his father's shoulders; the sweet, secret smile a daughter saves for her mother alone...

Our ordinary lives are lived in moments of extraordinary beauty.


It is my intent to capture those moments for you and your family -- to tell the story of your love for each other, and the joy you share in simply being together.  It is my hope that these captured moments will become a part of your unique story, and that when you see your images, you will be reminded of the great beauty of your love.

I would be honored to have the opportunity to work with you, and to create a work of art that celebrates you!

With warmest regards,

Mary
